SEMA and the state of California now in bed together. Life for hot rodders in California and by extension, the rest of the country, has just taken a major hit. The state is putting in place new laws for titles and registration of speciality vehicles. The details are too long for this post, but essentially if you registered your "new" car as a '32, for example, but it was built and registered in say 2001, you may well be liable for back taxes and penalties because you registered it as a 1932 and not a 2001. To make matters even worse, it must pass all emission tests for a 2001 vehicle. Don't worry though, SEMA has made it possible for you purchase an emissions "kit" that will "maybe" get it to pass the test. The cost is reported to be around $6000. Yes, with three zeros. And for another 5 grand you can have it installed by a certified installer. This means no more carbs, only EFI. Thanks SEMA for all your support. One thing SEMA got the state to concede is that it will "give" the first 500 vehicles to apply a pass on the emissions if the back taxes are payed. Now let's see .......that leaves how many rodders having to face the new law? Any more input on this from you folks out there?
